Minesweeper
« on: December 20, 2003, 15:46 »
Do you get bored at work and play minesweeper on the pc, does it always beat you?

Well here is a way of getting even  ;D

Start the game then type xyxxu. hold down [shift]and press [Enter], then minimise all other program windows and start playing.
Take a look at the very top left corner of your screen;if you run the mouse over a mine square this pixel will turn black, and if its a safe square it will turn white.

You have no excuses not to win now  ;D

Watching from their living walls
Broken glass reflections
Show your flesh eaten away
Beyond the gates I'll take you

BTW the cheat code mentioned in the first post is actually wrong :)

It should be "xyzzy" which happens to have another significance to all text adventure players.
hey promised the earth! Then delivered mud.
Technically it did meet the spec.
